. the president did run a fantastic campaign. they understand america as it exists today. republicans tried to convince themselves that it was the america they knew in the past and they delewded themselves. and now you're seeing the results today. here's where we got it wrong and we've got to rethink. definitely kudos to david axelrod, gym messina. but i think the economy was getting better and people ultimately said i want to give this guy another four years to finish the job. >> here's one thing that i don't think was a factor in the last week. the hurricane on the east coast. if there was a factor in the last week, i believe it was mitt romney going into ohio, lying to ohio about something ohio voters know the truth about on this sending jeep jobs to china and to lie straight to the voters who know it's not true, who are related to the workers, whose jobs were not going to china was a deadly move by romney. >> we know that three out of four ohio voters thought the economy was doing very poorly. they were not that excited about what's going on because it's tough out there. but when it com

and escaping from the drug war coming here. america is slowly moving against the war on drugs. it's kinld of amazing to see this movement. we see colorado and washington creating a very liberal open policy, california striking down their three-strikes law. that says let's not have nonviolent drug offenders go away to jail for a long time. judges and police say this is a losing battle. let's move towards treatment and decriminalization and treat it like alcohol rather than prohibition and criminalization. we have a mexican president saying, hey, let's look at a different way to treat this thing. let's talk about what he recently said. in favor of opening a new debate in the strategy in the way we fight drug traffickings. it's clear after several decades we have more drug consumption, drug use, drug trafficking. things are not working. a change in the drug policy would have a massive impact on the economy and on crime in both north america and throughout south america, and would lead the way and open the path toward a more humane immigration policy and people in america accepting them. >> i

with america's march of freedom. one does not. i want our president to be on the right side of history. one sees climate change as an urgent problem. one does not. i want our president to place scientific evidence and risk management above electoral politics. well said by a savvy mayor of new york. he is so smart. >> the guy is very savvy. >> he waited until now. >> correct. i had somebody use the following phrase with me, he may be the ultimate lagging indicator in that mayor bloomberg is a cautious guy politically. he's always looking out for mayor bloomberg, and there's nothing wrong with that. politicians always look out for their own best interests first. that's the nature of being an ambitious pol, but would he have done this if he thought obama was going to lose? >> that's an indicator of the public. >> that's my question. i don't know. >> by the way, the late brilliant jack jarvis -- somebody once say when that ball comes down on new year's eve, or just at midnight when it starts to come down, that's how he would come down on an issue. you know the decision had been made. here i giv
their vision of america didn't pan out two weeks ago today. while you have others in the republican party trying to deal with reality, martinez in new mexico, jindal in louisiana. they are speaking up forcefully about what the republican party needs to do to ensure, from their perspective, the drubbing they got by the democratic presidential nominee two weeks ago doesn't happen to their party and to their nominee come 2016. i mean, it's the right message for them -- it's the right way for them to be thinking if they want to save their party f they want their party to not slide any further into being a regional party but to still be a national party and a national party that actually knows how to govern. >> now, krystal, when you look at the fact that the campaign manager for the manager, jim messina, at a breakfast this morning, he said that the white house feared running against huntsman. take a look. >> we were honest about our concerns about huntsman. you know, i think huntsman would have been a very tough general election candidate. it's someone who helped manage his confirmation for
was going to repeal it on day one and everybody in america knew it. so what is speaker john boehner talking about? here's the thing. we always knew it was going to be a tough fight. i think the american people need to step up and remind the republicans what they said in the campaign. and that means that the election is one thing but active citizenship is another and these guys are going to try to balance this fiscal slump on the backs of the most vulnerable. we are not going to be able to tolerate that. it's time for folks to start writing, calling, and letting their voices be heard one more time to make sure that this thing is done right. >> now, governor rendell, is immediately rejecting boehner's omnicare ploy. i'm quoting what they said. it's a total nonstarter. boehner's office knows that. so even bringing it up is counterproductive. is it counterproductive? and why are they bringing this up, governor? >> well, first of all, let's make one thing clear. the cbo has said definitively that the affordable health care act will not increase the federal deficit. they said it will reduce it sl
with themselves over here, the administration and the rest of america is kind of in another place and i think the administration rightly so and remember this was an issue when the president was first elected, there were questions about whether or not he would use the power of that database of people. i think it is a great thing and i hope he does it because i think it is important people you said outside of washington know the kinds of gains going on on capitol hill and the things this people voted for not being acted upon by republicans. >> as i was talking with congressman van holen, again, there is a growing number of gop folk that is seem to be backing away from grover norquist's tax pledge. given that the very idea of raising taxes could be damaging to any republican who might be facing a primary in the next year, is there really enough support for shunning norquist at this point? >> you remember, even when george bush was president, democrats said they wouldn't cut taxes at all. bush ended up winning that pr battle and the conversation wasn't about whether they would cut taxes and how m
of the house of representatives and take our oath to the constitution of the united states of america and still most republicans will take their oath to grover norquist and that's the fundamental difference between us. >> here is senator lindsey graham of south carolina on norquist. here it is. >> i agree with grover we shouldn't raise rates but i think grover is wrong when it comes to we can't cap deductions and buy down debt. i want to buy down debt and cut rates to create jobs. i will violate the pledge long story short, for the good of the country only if democrats will do entitlement reform. >> does this mean you have to put medicaid, medicare on the table to get these folks to think your way. graham isn't going far enough. congressman tom cole, another republican, is willing to see what people wants. is this starting to crack? are we seeing a trend? >> democrats have passed the budget control act which cut spending by nearly $1 billion. with he were willing to support a compromise that would further reduce spending in exchange for revenues from the rich. we have already agreed to compromi

things done in washington -- supporters are gathering now -- to bring america to the white house and in so doing, basically get the american people to ratify the change that the president would like to see happen on capitol hill. >> yeah. this is one of the lessons he's learned from the obama care battle where he had no outside game. he basically told the left and all the folks who had supported him during the 2008 campaign, sit down, we've got this, we're going to do it through rahm emanuel, legislative wheeling and dealing. that didn't work so great. the other side flooded the capitol with people carrying guns so now he's mobilizing his base to try to get this done. >> and let us hear him mobilize that base. the president speaking at the white house. >> thank you so much. thank you, everybody. please have a seat. thank you. thank you very much. everybody, please have a seat. except you guys. don't sit down. well, good morning, everybody. >> good morning. >> you know, there's been a lot of talk here in washington about the deadlines we're facing on taxes and deficits. these dead
in and play this kind of a game when everything has changed in america and this time everything has changed because it's all coming to pass on december 31sst and grover babe is losing a person a day and he knows it. so what does he use to cover that? cutesies. little smart alecs. i know that. i don't know who else does that. i haven't done that. he is becoming irrelevant. and you can see it in his eyes. he knows the game is up. because good people of good faith have decided that instead of being republicans, or democrats, they're americans. and instead of being beholden to grover norquist, and the aarp, they're beholden to the united states of america. those guys are going to take their lumps. >> alan simpson, do you think there's going to be a deal? >> well, my friend erskine, the numbers guys, he does the numbers and i do the color, when he says he doesn't think we're going to get a deal -- let me tell you, he's working every day. he's here. i have to get the morning plane out of cody at 6:00 a.m., get here at 3:30, he's here within an hour and a half away, he sees these people, the presi
government has been the strength and we've been who we are in the united states of america. >> we're going to come back on this because karen, i'm particularly interested in talking to you about this because as a democrat in bobby jindal's louisiana you guys know how to make power work in difficult circumstances. even as the negotiations seem like a do-over from 2011, there was one voice notably absent from the table this time around. who and where is he? that's next. into their work, their name on the door, and their heart into their community. small business saturday is a day to show our support. a day to shop at stores owned by our friends and neighbors. and do our part for the businesses that do so much for us. on november 24th, let's get out and shop small. we challenged the manufacturers to offer even lower prices.n. now it's posturepedic versus beautyrest, with $400, $500, up to $600 off. serta icomfort and tempur-pedic go head-to-head with 3 years interest-free financing. plus free same day delivery, set-up, and removal of your old set. when brands compete, you save. mattress price
. i just wonder, with america and the world, business leaders here, business leaders around the world, the markets, everybody else looking so closely at this, was it necessary for the president to be so provocative with something that, you know, even "the new york times" said was, quote, loaded with democratic priorities, and really gave republicans nothing. >> again, it's a curious offer. i would imagine there has -- tim geithner's too smart of a guy, and this administration is filled with smart people. they must have a serious strategic plan. but if you were a pedestrian watching this, if the ceo of a company that's not been into the white house, a medium-size to small company, it has to be a source for alarm this morning that maybe they're not nearly as close to a deal as we thought. let alone if you're a ceo if you've been in the office with the president and you've laid out some of your priorities and concerns. >> so but it is step one, though, in a negotiation. >> it is step one. >> okay. so it's like bidding on a house. you always go farther from where you're going to be. >> bu

to newt gingrich and the contract for america and we have been living in this gingrich contract for america, grover norquist tea party state of the republican party since then and so far, they have only been engaging in what grover called impure thoughts, which i love that's how he thinks of it, but just the very fact they would openly question the pledge is to remarkable because essentially lowers tax rates is the only thing republicans have stood for in recent elections. >> cane was using this very cute trick that republicans first starting using. they started floating this thing about oh, that pledge was made for another congress. i didn't seen it again thr the election that i yus won a year ago or two weeks ago, whatever the case may be and so peter king didn't invent that. >> that's something that grover was rebuffed. you can opt out. >> once you're in, that's it. >> yes. >> but look, the big good news for progressives here, there are two fundamental values that have driven the economic conversation for republicans in this era. one is deficit is the biggest problem. here we

you to try to get folks that look more like america and not be as white as the republican party is? >> you know, one of the ironies of this election outcome at least right now some of our latino members, some of our women members and perhaps the african-american members which is kind of ironic. look, we have to do better. we know that. we have to learn from our losses. republicans have had since world war ii. we're coming off the biggest. so we have a message that works. look at the census data, though, and tell me today with poverty rates shooting up even higher among latinos and asians that somehow what the democrats have offered has worked for them. and, you know, the best thing we can do is run on our economic platform. it's about creating jobs, it's about lifting people out of poverty and, yes, we're going to reach out and do a better job communicating that message. mistakes made, we're going to learn from them, do better. >> mitt romney said in a conference call to his financial chai chairs, the reason he lost the presidency is the president was giving gifts to those groups.
is a number one priority. he writes supposedly any day now investors will lose faith in america's ability to come to grips with its budgets failures. when they do there will be a run on treasury bonds, interest will spike and the u.s. economy will plunge back into recession. this sounds plausible to many people because it's roughly speaking what happened to greece but we're not greece. he's saying while this is a real dynamic for some countries, it is not because of the way we fund ourselves, is that right, ben? >> that's right. i would say morning munnize not actually by given name. >> i didn't know that. >> he's right, we're not greece, we're a much larger economy. we can grow our way out of debts and deficits. we've got a ginormous economy. we had a huge black friday weekend. probably $600 billion for the total shopping over the holidays. the question is, as we get close and getting into december, if it looks like talks are breaking down and we have the same old lines on no tax increases for the wealthy versus no spending cuts at all on the left on social security or medicare, then you

to break out of the strangle hold, look like it's standing up for america, they will come to the table with the president. >> and one thing that i do think -- i don't know if norquist deserves credit, but i'm struck when i step back and look at where the tax debate is today. both democrats and republicans agree that we should keep 80% of the bush tax rates. bush tax cuts, i'm sorry. it's just the top percent that should change. even democrats today are closer to the bush consensus on taxes than to the clinton consensus on taxes. so do you think this conversation has moved to the right? or were the rates too high for this moment when the middle class is struggling. >> i wouldn't say that a consensus to reduce taxes on the middle class and increase taxes on the rich is a move to the right. it's actually a move to the left. what people are becoming more sensitive to is inequality of income and wealth and opportunity and power in this country is wider than it has been in about 85 to 100 years. therefore, it's appropriate and necessary to raise taxes on the rich and reduce the tax burden on
